Luxury Design, Past & Present
This fabulous brooch is a quintessential expression of the Art Deco movement! With its geometric symmetry and segmented compartments of design; its openwork emphasizing the positive use of negative space and its intricate execution—such a pin can only be described as being born of the Art Deco sensibility!
The period just before World War 1 and through the 1930s saw a remarkable shift in the decorative arts of the western world affecting everything from architecture to fashion to jewelry. It was a period that fiercely celebrated modernity and reflected a consuming obsession with the power of technology to influence arts and culture. “During its heyday, Art Deco represented luxury, glamour, exuberance, and faith in social and technological progress.” *
